Restorative Dentistry & Endodontics in New Haven, Connecticut
Dental issues left unchecked can lead to a number of problems that can impact an individual’s overall wellness. Albania Dental provides a range of services to patients in New Haven that aim to restore dental health and prevent future issues from developing. Dr. Jimenez focuses on repairing teeth and helping patients build beautiful, long-lasting smiles.
Rising Dental Complications with Infected Pulp
When dental pulp becomes infected, conditions may result in several systemic health issues as well as dental issues. Tooth decay allows harmful bacteria to enter the bloodstream through the pathways of teeth’s root canals and into the body. Bacteria entering the bloodstream can lead to greater health issues, such as tooth loss, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s disease.
Root Canal Therapy, also known as endodontic therapy, addresses the decay inside teeth’s root canals and clears the pathways of any residual bacteria that have potential to cause harm or damage to the individual’s health.
During treatment at Albania Dental, Dr. Jimenez removes infected pulp and seals the root canals to prevent further infection from occurring. Finally, once treatment is complete, a crown is placed directly on top of the affected tooth to protect it from damage and restore its anatomical structure. Our tooth-colored crowns improve the function of patients’ teeth while producing a natural look.
We utilize traditional and clear braces to fix many dental issues that may cause problems with a patient’s bite or result in difficulty maintaining proper hygiene. Using braces, Dr. Jimenez can close gaps, create space, and straighten teeth to develop an optimal bite specific to each individual.
Our office offers both traditional and clear orthodontic treatment to align teeth and create a uniform, comfortable bite patients will be proud to smile with.
